John Paul II small forward Jackson Forbes verbally commits to Princeton
John Paul II senior Jackson Forbes - a 6-foot-6, 210-pound small forward - verbally committed to Princeton on Wednesday.
Forbes chose Princeton over scholarship offers from Iowa, Yale, Temple and Rice.
"I couldn't be happier for Jackson," said coach Jacob Anderson in a press release. "He has been an unquestioned leader for our basketball team and a tremendous ambassador for the school. It has truly been a blessing to coach Jackson and I look forward to watching him in college after he finishes his business here at JPIIHS."
Forbes played two seasons at Plano West before transferring to John Paul II. He was named first team All-State TAPPS 5A and led his team to an appearance in the TAPPS state championship game last season. Forbes is also a member of the AAU Texas Titans.
